2. Explain how you are going to design a lesson plan online by using Web Quest and what are the real propose using this kind of technology in your professional development. I might design a lesson depending of the level my students have, for example if I have a student of sixth grade, I will provide the topic Modal Verb, I will give a little introduction like this; Modal verbs are also called modal auxiliaries or modals. Modal verbs are sometimes called defective verbs, because they do not have all the functions of main verbs or auxiliary verbs. They can't be used without a main verb, can't form gerunds or participles, and do not have any endings to show person, number, or tense. Modal verbs form questions without the help of the other auxiliary verbs. Some modal verbs are rarely used in questions. Modal verbs also have quite a few peculiarities in the formation of tenses Then I might add in the task for example All students have to look for information (more than the one I already gave them) about Modal Verb. -Student has to watch some videos that I update to webquest. -All students will make sentences using the modal verb. -Student has to give me the sentences and I will choose some of them in order to they say the sentences. -It is going to do a test. In the process first student has to get information in order to they know what this is about, then in the webquest I will post a video about modal verb and they have to watch the video and at the final of the video, student has to take a quiz that it is in the link that it will be belong of the video. Then in classes how student already know what is this about, they have to create some sentences about modal verb after that student will give the sentences and I chose some of them in order to they say in class. Finally I just will do a test to know if they learn. The propose that webquest has is how teacher can teach using TECH in the classroom and how to use the webquest as a funny way to learn and teach.

3. Explain how you are going to deal if you want to use technology in a school or place of work but there is not Tech in the classroom. What are you going to do? How are you going to solve the problem? Provide resources that you will use and the procedures The solution to this problem it will be strongly simple first I might do a recompilation about how my student are, or in what level they are, in order to do a plan for organize my class. And the solution will be if I have the instrument in this case the computer or divides that I can use to teach, I just can take my computer to the classroom and I will teach them but with this appear other question if students are strongly many I will have schedule in order to all can practice in the computer.
